Celery, Apples, Potatoes, oh my!
A great looking film telling us about the many advances we've come in modern agriculture. What I llike about this film is that it shows stuff we havent seen before, like the preservation of Celery, radishes and even how on earth they make the "scalloped" or "mashed" dry potato mix you can get. Heck, they even show how they make Fried Chicken TV Dinners! So you have that, plus you have great supermarket imagery, of people shopping. Great to see the stores of the past. I really enjoyed this film, and it's highly reccomended on this site!
Presents today's supermarkets as the showplaces of agriculture. Discusses methods of improvement in the growing, handling, processing, and shipping of food products and the cooperative assistance offered by agricultural and food-processing research centers. Hypothesizes that a nation grows according to the productivity of its agriculture.
